Oral history of whale sightings (North America)

A new exhibit dedicated to Cook Inlet Beluga whales opens Friday June 8 at the Alaska Sea Life Center in Seward. To highlight the exhibit, an oral history of the white whales, commissioned by the Kenai Peninsuala Borough, is now available.  As KSKA’s Ellen Lockyer reports, authors of the history gathered anecdotal reports of sightings dating from the mid twentieth century to the present, and one thing is clear from the compilation….. there’s not many belugas swimming in Cook Inlet these days.  For full story including short interview excerpts, click here.
